When mortals die [203/365]

The original 'Great Khali'
God must be making a Bollywood movie because India lost two of her most endearing Bollywood superstars in the last fortnight.
Dara Singh and Rajesh Khanna.

While I haven't seen either of their movies, yet, the deluge of emotions that Indian movie buffs poured out is testimony that good actors never die. They just change addresses.

Which is more than what we can say of most of today's Bollywood. In an cut-throat world of competition, it is really anyone's day. What sets the boys from the men or the girls from the women is integrity, sincerity and the uncanny ability to stay out of controversy.

While some actors have been able to strike the right balance with all three, a few of them thrive on the news they generate every couple of days. But I guess that is important when you are an actor who is not (good at) acting.
After all, any publicity is good publicity.

RIP Dara Singh and Rajesh Khanna.
I sincerely hope you've left the right legacy.
Bollywood's Lover boy
